The first means effective ways [strategies] to help someone cope [deal] with problems.

stunted means failure to grow in a normal fashion. Calves whose mothers have a normal supply of milk will experience normal growth. A calf whose mother has a poor supply of milk will be stunted.

There may be other meanings.
